Tagged Elk Number 10 has been found dead about half a mile east of the Wraith Falls trailhead in Yellowstone National Park on Saturday. A wolf pack was seen feeding on his carcass which leads to his likely death by the same wolf pack. Number 10 became famous after he was featured in a film on the elk by British Broadcasting Corp. He and Bull Elk number 6 have been the two most famous and powerful bulls in the Mammoth area. Number 10 was estimated to be between 16 and 18 years old at his time of death.
